|Why would you do that? This setup is extremely common among people that climb reasonably hard (AKA other than Majidoit). I have been using it for years. One person raps both strands, then the other person raps both strands. Kind of like how rapping is supposed to go, pre simul-rap era. One person at a time. None of this hauling ass to the ground with two people on one belay device, or simul-raping on the 6mm crap.

and rope is attached via EDK in to double chain loop on the anchor and bang, there we go , EDK pooped and my partner took 400 footer on the 6mm rope.
If I absolutely, positively had to use this setup I would use a tandem rappel (i.e. two people on one rap device) with both ropes in the rap device.
